The MEA's statement came hours after Pakistan Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry termed Pulwama attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in February 2019 as "achievement" under Prime Minister Imran Khan's leadership. Our success in Pulwama, is an achievement of the people under the leadership of Imran Khan. You and us are all part of that success," Chaudhry said.
